Based in Vienna, Austria, we employ over 100 talented people from over 30 countries. The new Bitpanda headquarters is located in the heart of Vienna and comprises around 3,000 square meters to have enough space to grow. In April 2019, Bitpanda received a PSD2payment service provider license from the Austrian financial marketauthority (FMA) in accordance with European law.
Our guiding principle has been from the beginning, to deliver the simplest User-Experience (UX) combined with the highest security standards. This allowed us to continuously grow since the compa- ny‘s foundation in 2014 and become well recognised within the Eu- ropean crypto-community. Bitpanda developed a strong reputation for being an easy-to-use, highly secure and trustworthy platform.
